No, essentially the most infamous Spider-Man story ever instructed, this time at the least, is Spider-Man: Reign, a 2006 miniseries written and illustrated by Kaare Andrews.

Pretty! No additional particulars have been confirmed about Reign 2, apart from that it’s set to reach a while in 2024. It comes at a time when the primary Spider-Man ongoing has been beneath hearth just lately for a storyline that noticed Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, killed in motion after showing within the collection as a minor supporting character. She bought higher, as a result of comics, however folks had been nonetheless rightfully aggravated that one among Marvel’s largest success tales of the twenty first century obtained a largely pointless “shock” loss of life (the small print leaked nicely upfront, placing Marvel on the again foot) within the pages of a largely unrelated character’s collection. Now the controversy is able to transfer on to one thing else, it could appear.
